Brooklyn's Baptism.....Some pics

I've just realised that I never actually put up pictures from Brooklyn's baptism I know most of you have seen pictures on Facebook but here are some more that Charloote, our budding 3 year old photographer decided to take whilst holding the camera.

Boys trip 4WDriving....

Jacob was allowed to go on his first boys adventure this time. Jason, Robert and Sarah's family of boys headed out in search of Craig's Hut from the man from Snowy river country. However they couln't get through as the area was flooded in the last few weeks. Dissapointed they still went insearch of some great 4WD areas that they usually head out to when shooting or driving. They came across a historical railway tunnel that was an important part of country/ regional Victoria many moons ago!

Uncle Simon makes sure that Jacob makes it to the top okay!

Jason and Robert enjoy some exploring together

From Jason's truck looking through to Sarah's dad's car infront. The group decided to take Robert to an area where they go shooting alot, about 30 mins from home. Robert gets to see how close the bushfires came and how the area is still trying to recover.

Jacob exploring's kind of like Where's Wally? (Jacob is in there somewhere - wearing a camo jacket just like Dad!)

Daddy and his boy! A great time was had by all and it was a great oportunity to see some beautiful countryside right around the corner.

Beautiful waterfalls in a secluded place recovering from the bushfires from last summer!

Our trip to the Melbourne Zoo with Grandma and Grandpa McDonald!

Robert and Hope took us all to the Melbourne Zoo while they were here and it was a fabulous day. The weather was perfect, we packed ur picnic lunch and headed off! Hope and Robert managed to avoid all photos but rest asured they were there. The lids loved exploring all the exhibits with them. Especially when there were little hidden snippets of information to find and read.
Charlotte has the map and was only interested in seeing ' Gloria, Alex, Marty and Melman'. Our favourite movie at the moment is Madagascar. So off we went.
Charlotte loves to take photos! Say cheese!

Jason and the troops enjoy some unwater exploring.

In the butterfly enclosure...... a butterfly on Jacob's hat!

Well, after church this week, Robert and Hope invited my whole family over for a delicious American BBQ spread to help thank everyone for their genrous hospitality. Now this was a BBQ to remember and certainly not one we're used to!!! We had all things cooking. There were hamburgers, hotdogs, huge steaks, baked beans, corn on the cob, huge potato salads, colslews and to top it all of we had icecream sundaes with nuts, whipped cream and cherries!!!! Talk about feast. The weather held off to be beautiful. We enjoyed a nice afternoon outside,
Jason and Robert finishing off the last of the steaks!

Chow time everyone!!!! Smile

Smile everyone - let's try this again! Chow time!

All the children love that sandpit,,,, including some big children too!

Jason and Hope relax after a hearty meal!

Finally for some sporting action after we've eaten ourselves silly!!!! Jacob I think is going to be a natural sportsman!!!
